Air Charter Service expresses confidence in Kazakhstan

December 13 - At the end of November, UK-headquartered international charter broker, Air Charter Service (ACS), opened a new branch in Almaty to serve Kazakhstan and the CIS region.

Chris Leach, chairman, ACS, says he has high hopes for the aircraft charter market in the region: "The opening of our office in Kazakhstan is a major step for the group. We have had a strong presence in Russia for over 15 years with our offices in Moscow and St Petersburg and we have been looking to expand on this success further throughout the CIS for a few years now.

"There have certainly been major challenges along the way, but we believe that the Kazakh aircraft charter market will show strong growth over the next few years due to its natural resources, the resulting investment in the region and the sheer size of the country," Leach added.
